5 Years Ago Today

I’m not a big fan of the new ‘memories’ function of Facebook.  For me, rehashing your old memories and putting them back up onto your wall on Facebook is nothing more than grandstanding.  At least that’s what I thought until this morning.

5 years ago today

I took this photo to remember the morning ritual that I endured when I lived in Japan.  Work all night, leave to jog at 4am, return by 6am, quick shower, make espresso and dinner / breakfast.  It didn’t always work out that way – more often than not I would say screw it and climb into bed.  Or exhaustion would take over and I’d fall asleep where I was sitting.  Then I would ‘have’ to walk to the 7-11 down the street and get a snack.

I find myself now doing a weird routine again – up at 4am, workout at 10am, meetings in the afternoon and evening.  I find that I can get a lot of work done before most people are awake and that these are my most productive hours of the day.

Ahhh Japan, I’m looking forward to seeing you in a new light soon.  😉
